8:44am
we dry out and another shout of showers into the bay area by mid-week. out of the bay area, there is winter storm warnings posted in the sierra through 10:00 and if you're heading out tomorrow, partly sunny at sfo and no weather-related air traffic delay is expected, sunny in new york for a change and 52 degrees and numbers on the chilly side, and hazy sunshine. the extended forecast will increase the clouds again tuesday night and this is favoring the north bay. they will linger through wednesday morning after that. thanksgiving looks dry and looks like it will stay dry right into the weekend. and one more shot at showers late tuesday and that will do it. ann and phil? >> thank you, brian. encouraging news on the california budget situation. the state's non-partisan legislative analyst said the deficit in the next fiscal year will be much smaller than we
8:45am
have seen in the past. >> and we may see surpluses down the line. that would be since the first time since 2001. this morning, assemblyman and state senator-elect jerry hill explained we're not out of the woods just yet. >> we're still short about $1.9 billion, if things go according to plan the way it is now, and that is still a challenge this we have to face. it's difficult. what we have seen in the past are the i responsible budgets. when i got to the legislature 3 1/2 years ago, fur four years almost, we had $42 billion we had to cut and you look at that budget and it was put together with springs and we spent more money than we had, there is no reserve or accounting. the debt service is almost 9% of the general fund budget and that is irresponsible. we had to deal with it. i think we did and unfortunate, the citizens of california had to face it and live with it. we can't get to that position again, and that is going to be the struggle. >> because even as we speak, there are a number of groups, the education and others who
8:46am
said it's time now since we do have this meany coming in, to restore the cuts. in other words, start spending again. >> well, we can't. we can't do that. if you look at the budget and part of the deficit we're looking at next year, that is because the facebook ipo did not come in as high as it was supposed to in terms of the sale. the stock sales. how can the eighth largest economy depend on a social media stock price? it will come back and haunt us again. there is no reserve in the state. we have the high debt service and should take the one-debt money. spend it on one-time causes to pay off the debt service. try to balance things in the long run. that is not what. >> done. i think the pressure is the other problem we're faced with is in the assembly, almost 50% new members. they were not there four years
8:47am
ago spending all night on the legislative floor trying to balance that $42 billion. they don't remember that, so we have to really show them the responsible way, i think. >> well, right, you see a -- seem a little temperd about this. we have the new people coming in and you know there are a lot of departments out there who will tend forward massive spending. >> of course. >> are you going to balance that? >> unfortunately, the governor made it clear he wants a responsible and even-keeled budget as we go forward. he doesn't want to raise taxes unless it goes to the voters, which i sing a responsible thing to do, but that is going to be the challenge, the whole back and heat restoring this. and certainly education, we owe education a large amount of money and have to pay that back. we have to bring k-12 education where it was before or this economy is not going to be the 8th largest in the world again. >> on the spending front. no new taxes on the vote of the
8:48am
people. we have fees. >> there are a number of vacant seats to be filled and we have added foes already and that is something we can do historically and i think there will be an adjustment with the cost associateed with the project, but i don't think they will be -- >> to be responsible, and i think the legislature will be responsible in this time. we know that we can't afford not to be. >> do you trust the legislative projections? >> i do. they have been accurate in the past. they have been close. the problem with the projections showing the $1 billion surplus a couple of years and the problem with the projections is it's based on status quo. no salary increases or excessive spending, you know, we have $40 billion of bonds we have not sold yet that we can sell and that is going to add to that $8.9 billion debt service every year. that is the problem.
8:49am
it's good and that is not going to stay the same. >> well, we expect to see more cash for the state's budget. >> and the same may be true for california's prison realignment effort. san francisco sheriff on what it means to bay area agencies. senator-elect jerry hill abt
8:50am
(car horn) paying with your smartphone instead of cash... (phone rings) that's a step forward. with chase quickpay, you can send money directly to anyone's checking account. i guess he's a kicker... again, again! oh, no you don't! take a step forward and chase what matters.

8:52am
s budget situa . we spoke with a family member and senator-elect jerry hill about california's budget situation. prop 30 will help, and it means more money for prison realignment. >> and that is for the people coming out of state prison and into county jails, a way for the state to save money. the question is how safe is that? we turn to san francisco sheriff and asked him are you worried about what is going to happen the next two years? >> we have a real opportunity in san francisco to demonstrate to the rest of the state how we can do something and the state average for many years has been around 77 or 78%. so, in essence, they have failed and failed for many years. recidivism, the repeat offender rate. it was my predecessor who shouldered much of the burden for many years. he invented many of the rehabilitation programs. now, many of the local criminal justice partners like adult
8:53am
probation department and others are coming in line to do something about high recidivism rates. this the first for san francisco. we're only's few counties in the whole state with undercrowding. >> people still get their cars broken into. >> right. >> the houses robbed by the low- level, non-violent. >> right. >> who tend to, if they comfortable, go to jail for a certain amount of time. >> right. >> keep going around and around. >> that merry go round, if you talk to sfpd, and when i chaired the city's public safety committees, the board of supervisors, and i was dogged about getting the kind of attention to my district, and why it was suffering chronically. and just that area. that is the norm. i wouldn't accept that and the idea, it's not responding to
8:54am
what is stagger us in the face, high recidivism rate. it's not new criminals but repeat offenders. >> this is the person who goes around. >> the priorities budgetarywise has been a fraction on those reab tative programs and no mechanisms for accountability to make sure that you're doing your job and doing it well. and which is why we're not working closely together. >> do you ultimately think the programs can keep people out of crime? >> no. not without the participant, the inmate themselves being held accountable. as sheriff, when i came in earlier this year into office, i asked adult probation to make it a condition to the probation. a sentence to a condition of their probation that they must complete a program while in custody and out of custody or else they violate probation. >> and sanford talks, one of the best college football teams in the country. >> it was not the only big upset this weekend.

9:12am
website, cbssf.com/food. i can't believe that thanksgiving is only a few days away. >> and what is the weather going to be like? >> that is the great question troubling those times. i will have an answer for you. first, we need to show you the current ratings in the bay area. we got good rain last night. it translates into snow above 6,000 feet. back here, the numbers are mostly in the mid-50s. and there is some fog up in the katati plane around santa rosa. 53 degrees at concord right now. the high clouds shroud most of northern california, but still, you have seen the sun through that and the rain, it's gone. it's, as can you see, from the high def doppler. channel 5s radar site. high atop mount vaca and that is not picking up anything. we're looking for a mostly dry day, not perfectly sunny but, nevertheless, the showers are heading out and a break from wet weather. more rain will be moving into the bay area on late tuesday and thanksgiving to answer phil and ann's question, thanksgiving looks dry.
9:13am
we'll cover the details. first, look at this. this had that is the storm that came through at 7:30 last night and that is headed into the mountains. it will produce more snow out there of as well and this looks potent. all of this is going to do is overspread the bay area with more high cloudiness and this front behind will just skirt to northern california. if you're going north, you'll get rain and here, we'll so the southern affects. high clouds and high pressure keeps it mostly out of the bay area. increasing sunshine compared to yesterday. and if your travel plans including heading out of sfo tomorrow, partly sunny skies, the temperatures, 64 degrees at sfo and this is for monday and new york looks a-okay. the low 60s, 63 at union city and 63 degrees for san mateo, redwood sea -- city, 62. cities for the east bear, high clouds over the bay area and to
9:14am
-- east bay, and 57 degrees over at bodega bay on the chilly side. and now, we increase the clouds on tuesday night and that is bleing to a chance of rain and high and dry in the area. there is forecast. >> and we're talking about the story of the week former cia director david petraeus apologized to lawmakers this weekar an affair with his biographer, paula broadwell. >> and there is still plenty of questions about the state of cure the and the fallout from the affair. that is why we had the u.s. hastings professor elizabeth hillman who is the down with us earlier and one of the things she talked about was e-mail privacy. >> when the united states government decides it wants information and there is a
9:15am
source, e-mail is the use of of the private data. and i think people can fail reasonably comfortable that it's not that easy for private individuals to get access. the government has to ask the internet service provider like google, for instance, those were g-mail, counts in this case that the information came from and they have to ask. the ifp complies if they consider it's reasonable request. this triggered google to look at the policies and other providers. >> so, basically, what the situation is, i write the e- mail and own the rights of what is in it and that isent lengthual property. there is certain privacy bounds. if the government knocks on the door and said we like to take a look at the e-mails, they're complying? >> they have to have a good -- the government has to have good reasons and the holder of the information, google's -- . >> who determines what is quote, unquote, a good reason?
9:16am
you don't go in front of the judge and they make a call. who makes a call? >> and you go in front a judge if you have a war a rant and on's warrant and that is in a 19 quick law. if an e-mail is older than six months, there is no need for a warrant from the judge. in this case, the fbi agent has the author tight make the decision. subject to the board of supervisors it would be devoted to that and that is a big distinction. the information, older than six months and that is not protected the same way other communications would be. >> and in this situation we're talking about a military general. the standards are so high with military conduct. is that something that should be relooked and we should be up in someone's business about?
9:17am
